    Do you remember when Kerry was running against Mr. Bush? They kept attacking his active service in combat in Vietnam and ignored Bush's staying in Alabama in the Guard? I never really understood that. One has shrapnel in his leg the other probably a bad liver, but they knocked the one who went to Vietnam.

    Now on TV, I keep hearing from some of the right wingsluts that Obama never worked for a thing in his life. What the fuck is that? He was born in a poor family. A half breed in a somewhat racist society. He got into Harvard. He graduated at the top. He has earned his way, and the little fat Ed Rodgers says he never worked for anything.

    He sponsored or co sponsored over 400 bills in Illinois, and in a Republican controlled Senate he got two bills passes that he sponsored.

    McCain's father was an Admiral. His second wife a millionaire. Right, he worked, Obama didn't.

    Republican really cannot stand people like Obama or Clinton.

    You see in their world view, people of superior merit should move out of their class and never looking back, they should work for those with money.

    After all, they reason, isn't their team the team that represents superior people (Never mind that they supported somebody like Bush II, they believe, as is evidenced all the time on boards like these)

    Hence we have the Republican loyalists lauding Bush II, whose life's vita is one of previlege and failure, while they attack the accomplisments and vita of people like Obama or Clinton who started with very little and achieved great success consistently whereever they went.

    Double standard, you ask?

    Their political assassin techniques aren't even that honest.

    Remember how many republican loyalists thought McCain was a RINO just a few years back?

    Most of those Republicans have agreed to have collective amnesia about that fact, haven't they?

    Republican loyalist, most of them, don't appear to have any hard and fast standards, or values ---they are merely partisans for their team.

    They take their talking points (however illogical or dishonest those are) and they spew them, as they do so often here, like good little GOP soldiers.

    These folks are not really hypocrites so much as they are ammoral pragamatists when it comes to politics.

    Basically they're become students at the ROVIAN SCHOOL OF POLITICS which believes winning for the team at any cost mitigates their sins however dishonorable or stupid it makes them seem to people with a memory and a sense of honor.

    One will lie, ten will swarm in to confirm the lie, even if last week they ALL believed something entirely different. They conform to the party line of the moment. There is no history they cannot deny if it suits their needs of the moment.

    GROUPTHINKERS to the last, they become a formitable team to defeat in elections, you Dems have gotta
    admit that.

    You inferred that Obama had experience and that Bush did not.

    I pointed out that Bush was governor.


    Thanks for playing.

    Have a nice day.
